I wanted to try out the new (ish) Lancome Grandiose mascara since I enjoyed their Star mascara so much (I had a sample, it was great). The packaging is really beautiful. It looks like a mini perfume bottle with a rose at the top (stunning).
The mascara is really nice for everyday. The plastics wand has lots of short little bristles which keeps your lashes fanned out. The wand is “swan neck” aka bent, so it’s easy to get in and wing out outer corners. If you flip the brush around you can get the lower lashes really beautifully.
The formula provides a nice everyday amount of drama, not too much volume and not too much length. It’s just really pretty (and not clumpy). The formula isn’t waterproof, but if I don’t come into contact with rain or a pool, I haven’t seen any smudging. I also get no flaking during the day.
Overall I really have been enjoying Lancome mascaras, this one included. You can get this mascara online, at Lancome counters and at Sephora for $32.
